by suppressing the freedom of religion. first of all, students theoretically have the same constitutional rights as the rest of us. that includes the freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion. this girl's not trying to have somebody celebrate mass in the hallway of the school. she's simply passing out literature saying if you'd like to talk about jesus or if you'd like to talk about the bible i'm happy to meet with you at another time and at another place. schools can restrain speech if the speech is disruptive. but when the speech is not disruptive and when it's especially protected in the constitution, like speech about religion or speech about nonreligion, they cannot interfere. >> here's the problem. the school has got a policy, and we got a statement from the school, quote, the distribution of any religious material is prohibited on school ground or in any attendance facility before, during or after the school day or school activity. so you say they've got that rule but that doesn't fly? >> that rule is unconstitutional unless they can show that the mere distribution of this lit l
